Have you heard Nichole Nordeman’s song, “Slow Down” yet on the radio? The first time I heart it.. I burst into tears. I didn’t really think about it when people made comments, “it goes by so fast” referring to the time we have with our little ones actually being little. But it does. And it hit me like a ton of bricks, when I actually stopped to listen to the lyrics of this song and reflect on my short time with Elsie already. She is 8 months already! I can’t believe it.. If you haven’t heard this absolutely beautiful song yet, check out this video.. but you might want to have some tissues in hand first!
When I was offered the chance to review Nichole Nordeman’s newest CD, “Every Mile Matters” I jumped at the chance because I just knew this song would be on there.. and it is! She is one of my favorite Christian artists. Her music is absolutely beautiful, but each song truly has a deep, special meaning that resonates so much with me – it’s like we’re music soul mates! On this newest album, I found “Slow Down” to still be my favorite song, especially since she recorded it with her daughter. Hearing her daughter’s beautiful voice singing the lyrics to this song truly makes the words and special meaning that much more powerful! There are so many great songs on this album and another favorite was “Every Mile Mattered” the song in which this entire album was named. You can check it out below.
In interviews, Nichole has said this about her newest album and the meaning behind it: “I think one of the greatest gifts we offer ourselves is reflection. Most of us live pretty compartmentalized lives. We close chapters. We dry tears. We square our shoulders and move on. We look toward what is up ahead and not behind us. For me, this has been a season of looking in the rear view mirror and embracing the miles behind me, however hard that journey may have been in places. I am a better person for each of those miles. My faith feels more sturdy, my eyes more open and these new songs came from those reflections. Acknowledging how even the roads I’d rather erase, are still shaping me and my story.”
One of the other things, I am beyond excited about (and can’t wait to get my hands on!) is her new book, “Slow Down” that is set to be released on August 22, 2017! In this book, Nichole shares how to embrace motherhood and live in each moment with your little ones! You can pre-order it HERE!
